    Abstract

    Alloy 690 in the thermally treated (TT) condition is an advanced steam generator tubing material. The effect of thermal ageing treatments on the intergranular corrosion (IGC) behavior of the alloy was probed. Isothermal ageing was carried out at 600, 700, and 800°C with varying ageing time. Morphology of the carbides was studied as a function of thermal treatment temperature and duration. The carbides morphology was observed to affect the IGC resistance. Grain boundaries devoid of carbides (solutionized condition) or with coarse carbide particles (formed at 800°C) enhanced IGC resistance, whereas dendritic fine carbides formed at lower ageing temperature yield inferior IGC resistance.
